48. Two wise posts!
You're both right, in my view.

The Huff's problem isn't excused by claiming she's within the law, as others in this thread are doing. Legality isn't remotely what's at stake; credibility is on the line here.

Learning of their role in subsidizing the Huff's social criticism, average voters will read her as a hypocrite. There is standing for economic justice, after all, and there is standing for economic justice while presiding over galas in a $7 million spread and paying little or no taxes...
